I was recording a series of songs, saving them one after the other as snapshots. unfortunately i realized at the end i made a mistake not saving 2 of the songs. to recover at least the recorded regions i went into the regions list on the menu on the right side and auditioned some of them to find the ones i was missing. after i found them i realized there was no way to drag them into new tracks. is that normal? so i ended up going in the import window and look for them and get them again from there, and that worked fine, but i'm sure there is a better way. 2 questions:
is there a way to choos regions from the column on the right and simply add them to the tracks?
is there a way to recover the starting time where the regions where saved the last time, i mean the position in the song?
thanks

This is normal expected behavior, that it wasn't working for you says something is wrong.

no, it does not work , if i try to drag nothing happens, or the rename mode comes out, it works only if i select a great number of regions names and then drag one of them, but not with all regions, many can not be dragged anyway.
i read the thread u told me, and did not understand: what is the BWA format? i'm recording through Ardour 2.8

@stefabarta: BWF = Broadcast Wave Format, its basically regular RIFF/WAVE (".wav") format plus some extra information typically needed in the broadcast and post-production industry. It includes "where this file was originally recorded on a timeline. You can select it via the Options -> Audio File Format -> File Type menu.
